Hallelujah -- North Korea thinks Trump's nuts

- The Washington Times

North Korea, via its state-run Communist Party newspaper, put out the message that President Donald Trump's a "psychopath" who needs to be curbed and controlled. Hallelujah. North Korea thinks Trump's a nutcase. It's just such messaging that's great for America -- that's great for America's national security.

Johnny Depp skates on kill Trump joke -- unlike Obama clown

- The Washington Times

Johnny Depp, Hollywood movie star, made a tasteless joke about President Donald Trump's assassination, and the media yawned. But if this had been about Barack Obama, the mainstream media would be alive with rage, and the jokester would be out of work. Remember the Missouri rodeo clown?

Now they want to read

I find it laughable that the Democratic congressional members are claiming no one has had time to read or study the 1,000-page, Republican-sponsored Obamacare modification. Yet I seem to remember that in 2010, then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged Congress to pass President Obama's 2,000-page health-care act so that Congress and all of America could "find out what's in it "

No one-party rule in Taiwan

Numerous social media accounts in Taiwan have been suspended for the 'crime' of criticizing Taiwan's government. The Taiwanese news media tend to self-regulate in order to avoid rejection of license renewal, and they hesitate to report protests or other anti-government-related events.

In this image from video provided by C-SPAN, Wall Street Journal reporter Jay Solomon is interview on the C-SPAN program Washington Journal on Sept. 23, 2014 in Washington. The Wall Street Journal on June 21, 2017, fired Solomon after evidence emerged about his involvement in prospective business deals, including one involving arms sales to foreign governments, with an international businessman who was one of his key sources. Solomon was offered a 10 percent stake in a fledgling company, Denx LLC, by Farhad Azima, an Iranian-born aviation magnate who ferried weapons for the CIA. It was not clear whether Solomon ever received money or formally accepted a stake in the company. Solomon did not immediately comment. (C-SPAN via AP)

Upholding a media standard

Newspaper reporters aren't expected to be purer than Caesar's wife (not even the wife of a Julius Caesar passing as Donald Trump), but a reporter who doesn't measure up to his newspaper's established ethical standards can expect to pay for it.

Sunshine on the wall

Congressional Democrats love to spend money on solar power and infrastructure projects, and President Trump has given them something to think about -- using the sun to power and pay for his border wall.

Terrorists come in all shapes, shades

The recent shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice in Alexandria attests to the terrifying reality that no one, not even our highest elected officials, is safe from the disturbing nationwide increase in violent acts. Particularly troubling is that the shooter, James Hodgkinson, appears to have made a calculated attempt to inculcate fear with his fierce opposition to President Trump and the GOP.

MSNBC 'Morning Joe' sickeningly paints Hitler picture of Trump

- The Washington Times

Hosts and pundits of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC traveled back in time to Nazi Germany days to make the case President Trump is much more like a dictator or fascist than a free-market, constitutional, duly elected leader. It's sickening. Note to left: Hitler was evil. Quit confusing evil with political differences.
